Located in the heart of Fells Point, Sound Garden is a cool little music store with a variety of funky items for sale and an ample collection of used and new music. It is a wonderful place to pick up an awesome gift for someone’s birthday, or just spend some free time browsing all the store has to offer. Since 1993 they have been growing their inventory and now have over 10,000 new and used CDs and DVDs in stock. Not only do they sell newly released music, but they also carry various amounts of imported music- regardless of how rare or obscure what you are looking for may be. Soundgarden is bound to have it!

They also carry releases from smaller independent labels and local artists- all for reasonable prices! If you are not able to find what you want, special orders can be placed at no extra charge, and it takes about a week for them to arrive. You are also able to listen to anything in the store before you buy it, all you must do is ask someone working in the store and they will assist you! Soundgarden does an excellent job at making buying music as easy it can be– the ordering and pickup process is quite simple, and the staff is incredibly helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Beyond CDs and DVDs, Soundgarden has tons of vinyl, T-shirts, stickers, patches, socks, card games, collectible figurines, and magnets. They even have their own parking lot for customers, and host live events! Artists like Beach House and the Goo Goo Dolls have played here before, but unfortunately, Covid has put this on hold. Next time you find yourself in Fell’s point you should check out the Soundgarden- you will not leave the store empty-handed!
